Everything you need to know about an

Extended Car warranty

What is Used Car Warranty?

If your car is over three years old, chances are your manufacturer's warranty will have expired. Used car warranty is your safety net should something go wrong with your vehicle. It provides a form of additional insurance cover against certain faults, which gives you with peace of mind that you’re protected when things don’t go to plan.

Warrantywise cover your car and offer the very best cover and service that is second to none, taking the stress out of these situations, to help protect you from facing unexpected repair bills that could run into thousands of pounds. Warrantywise protects you against expensive repair bills.

Do I need a Car Warranty?

Every year over 1,000,000 cars are left unprotected when their manufacturer's warranty expires. This leaves car owners exposed to high-priced repair bills often running up into the hundreds and sometimes thousands.

Modern vehicles can cost a small fortune to fix if they go wrong and with some main dealers now charging up to £200 per hour, the labour charges alone can be crippling. Your car is likely to be the 2nd largest investment you’ll make in your lifetime, so why leave it without mechanical breakdown protection?

Taking out an extended warranty with Warrantywise will protect you from these costs that seem to come at the most inconvenient times. No other warranty company covers more of your vehicle and all our warranties include roadside assistance, recovery, car hire and your hotel and travel expenses as standard.

What happens when the Manufacturers Warranty Expires?

When your car was new it would have been protected by a warranty supplied by the manufacturer. Typically this will cover you for 3 years or 60,000 miles after the date of manufacture against defects that may cause your car to malfunction. The manufacturer will then replace or repair the vehicle at no cost to you.

The Warrantywise extended car warranty is designed to offer similar protection which your manufacturer supplied when your car was new. In effect, you are extending your protection against mechanical or electrical breakdown and protecting your bank balance if something goes wrong with your car.

Is every Extended Car Warranty the same?

Unfortunately not. Many companies offer extended car warranties but the difference in cover between the plans available varies significantly.

Some warranty plans only cover you for a set list of items on your car, and there are over 5,000 parts in a typical car, a list of 150 covered items on a set of warranty terms and conditions doesn’t provide good value for your money! Warrantywise provide a used car warranty that covers ALL the mechanical and electrical parts of your vehicle when it’s up to 6 years old or has travelled up to 60,000 miles. If your vehicle exceeds these limits we offer listed Part warranty packages that provide comprehensive cover unrivalled in the marketplace. Want to know what’s covered?

What's Covered

Who pays for repairs?

When it comes to paying out a repair for a Part on your car, many warranty companies use clever jargon to make sure they don’t have to give you the full amount. For example, many plans have betterment clauses in them, which means that a company will only pay out a limited percentage of a Part depending on the age and mileage of your vehicle.

Warrantywise cover you for 100% of the cost for replacing parts required in a valid repair. We also offer cover for Labour costs from £35 to £200, so you can choose the exact level of Labour you need for your car and/or budget. No matter if you have a Fiat or Ferrari, you can rest assured you will be fully covered if you decide to take the car back to the main dealer for repairs, so long as you have chosen the correct Labour rate. We also pay the true amount for breakdown and recovery, car hire and your hotel and travel expenses if you need them. Please refer to your plan documentation for the full repairs limits.

No Weasel Words

Many warranty companies look to wiggle out of paying for your repair through nasty small print and stipulations. We have gained the trust of many high-profile tv presenters, including Quentin Willson who has designed and banned all 'Weasel Words' from the Warrantywise plan, as this is simply the fairest way.

So you won’t find words like betterment, consequential failure or breakdown that limit the cover you get.

Car Warranty Servicing: Do's and Dont's

Dont's Do's
We don't require you to have full service history or any servicing at a main dealer We do need proof that the last relevant full service was performed within the last 12 months , 10,000 miles or any other service period recommended by the manufacturer
Don't use the window cleaner, even if he used to sweep up and make the tea at Rolls Royce when he was a lad. Need to use a VAT registered garage (those are the ones that charge you VAT).
Don't show us a page torn out of a duplicate book with the words, “full service carried out for fifty quid” we won’t be impressed! Do make sure you get VAT receipts showing what’s been done and what parts have been fitted.
If you use a main dealer you’re home and dry, otherwise DO make sure whoever carries out the service does so as recommended in your service book and within 30 days or 1,000 miles of the period stated.

NOTE: You must use a VAT registered garage, request detailed receipts and follow the manufacturer’s recommendations in your service book.

Stick to all of the above and you can’t go wrong! I’m sure you’ll agree we aren’t asking the earth, and it can save us both a lot of unnecessary headache.

Choose Who Repairs Your Vehicle

Many warranties won’t pay more than their network Labour rate (often as low as £28/hour) or leave you to arrange your own repairs and run the risk of a botched job.. We allow you to choose the Labour rate, from your friendly neighbourhood mechanic (providing he is VAT registered) rate right up to the local main dealer pricing, so you have all the choices you need at a price you can afford. We also operate an Approved Repairer scheme which will carry out any repairs required under the warranty and can even Service and MOT your vehicle at an over-riding discount, where importantly, we pay the garage directly.
